Publisher's Description

Endorsed by best selling frontier romance authors Laura Frantz, Shannon McNear, and Michelle Griep, Bent Tree Bride provides it all for readers--swoon-worthy romance, intrigue, and the struggle for honor as the excitement of the frontier collides with a forbidden romance. One man fights to prove his inner warrior and scholar can co-exist while one woman struggles to guard her heart. 

Susanna Moore can't get him out of her mind-the learned lieutenant who delivered the commission from Andrew Jackson making her father colonel of the Cherokee Regiment. But the next time she sees Lieutenant Sam Hicks, he's leading a string of prisoners into a frontier fort, and he's wearing the garb of a Cherokee scout rather than the suit of a white gentleman. 

As both Susanna's father and Sam's commanding officer, Colonel Moore couldn't have made his directive to stay away from his daughter clearer to Sam. He wants a better match for Susanna-like the stuffy doctor who escorted her to Creek Territory. Then a suspected spy forces Moore to rely on Sam for military intelligence and Susanna's protection, making it impossible for either to guard their heart.

Editorial Reviews

"Bent Tree Bride offers a rare glimpse into the hidden history of the past where larger than life, unlikely heroes helped forge our nation in remarkable ways. Well done!"

~ Laura Frantz,
Christy Award-winning author of The Frontiersman's Daughter
"Romance. Intrigue. Honor. Bent Tree Bride is all that and more. An action-filled historical depiction of a time of unrest in our nation, when tensions were high and so were the stakes. And if that weren’t enough, the love story between Susanna and Sam is positively swoon-worthy! I heartily recommend it."

~Michelle Griep,
Christy Award-winning author of Once Upon a Dickens Christmas

"Be transported to the eastern frontier of Tennessee and the Cherokee Nation in this slice of lesser-known history. Denise Weimer weaves a heartrendingly sweet love story against the backdrop of an intriguing and enlightening account of native involvement in the War of 1812. You’ll find yourself rooting not only for Susanna to grow in strength to match what her heart already wants, but for Sam to know that he is indeed a man of honor and worthy of his beloved. This author is fast becoming one of my must-reads!"

~ Shannon McNear,
2014 RITA finalist and author of The Cumberland Bride, #5 of Daughters of the Mayflower

"Bent Tree Bride is an intricate weaving of history and fiction. Denise Weimer takes her readers on a perilous and emotional journey, leaving me to wonder where history left off and fiction began. With richly drawn characters who capture your heart and imagination, Bent Tree Bride is a page-turner I highly recommend."

~ Ane Mulligan,
Bestselling author of the Chapel Springs series and the Georgia Magnolias series


"Denise Weimer weaves tales rich in history and populated with characters deserving of the stunning settings in which she places them. Don’t miss this one!"

~Terrie Todd,
Award-winning author of The Silver Suitcase, Maggie’s War, and Bleak Landing

"Bent Tree Bride is an intriguing story of love and family set against the backdrop of the War of 1812. Susanna, daughter of a white captain, is promised by her father to wed a man she doesn’t love. Sam, a mixed-blood Cherokee, struggles to understand his ancestors’ long-held customs. When Susanna and Sam fall in love, they are forced to grapple with clashing cultures that threaten to keep them apart. Denise is a masterful storyteller who weaves fictional characters with historical events to touch readers’ hearts while presenting enlightening glimpses into our nation’s past."

~Pat Nichols,
Award-winning author of The Willow Falls Series 

"Bent Tree Bride is an exquisitely complex, compelling, intriguing dive into colonial history. Real-life characters such as Davy Crocket, General Jackson, and Cherokee and Creek Indians, and well-researched details set the reader in that time. Weimer captures the sights, sounds, and drama of Susanna and Sam in Indian Territory so well that it came alive as I read the story. A must-read for history lovers … or anyone!"

~Susan G Mathis,
Author of Devyn’s Dilemma and Katelyn’s Choice
